Of dragons and non-powered flight

2_gryphon talks about the logic behind an inspirational e-mail quote: "May the wind be at your back and strong beneath your wings". Pretty much the entire post is hilarious, but here's just a few snippets:

"First, in non-powered flight, the wind being at your back is bad. It slows down your air speed! You know what happens when your air speed is too slow? You stop flying and start FALLING. You then crater your stupid ass in Farmer Pickens' hay field and quickly die a lot. So the first part of this statement is not a well-wishing at all!"

"However, if the wind is STRONG from beneath your wings AND coming from behind, you have to wonder... where is all this air going? Up and from behind? That means that somthing in front of and above you is sucking up large amounts of air! In other words...

YOU'RE BEING SUCKED INTO A THUNDERSTORM!!!"
